By letter dated April 2, 2018, the Court scheduled a trial of this pro se claim to be held on August 16, 2018. The letter sent to claimant at his last known address was not returned to the Court. Claimant has not notified the Court of any change of his address as required by 22 NYCRR § 206.6 (f).

At the outset of trial, counsel for the State made a motion to dismiss the claim pursuant to Court of Claims Act § 19 (3) and 22 NYCRR § 206.15 for failure to prosecute the action and claimant's failure to appear for the scheduled trial.
The Court GRANTED the State's motion to dismiss Claim No. 129217.
